vintage chenille bath mat mission !






Whilst I am supposed to be sewing pants and skirts to replenish my ever dwindling stock...I kinda got sidetracked! ( as if you dont know what thats like, the juices were flowing) and I had to have a fight with the top shelf in the wardrobe to retrieve a long ago purchased, almost written off ( but never forgotton ) Vintage Chenille Bedspread !



Bath Mats were the order of the day, they just popped into my head and off I went on a tangent! I'm going to list one in my etsy store and take the others to market, and if there are any left I might take them to heaven.










They are so shabby delicious I might have to keep one for the new house ( 8 days til settlement)



I also managed to make some pants, two of these, size four and size one and a hot pink pair size 2, to add to the collection. Do you like this new style with a side pocket instead of a yo yo for boys. There is a vintage button on the pocket too.



Let me know what you think :)
P.S Still have position vacant for sewer/helper.


Oh and dont forget to pop over to Brisstyle where many of us are having a sale ! Yay we love sales!

Cool idea. Very clever of you. Tangents are good occassionally.
